The "Best Cities for Female Founders" list features 15 U.S. locales in states spanning New York to California. Dallas' high ranking was bolstered by $31.6 million
in revenue for 2011-2012 and a whopping 47.8 percent growth of female-owned business from 1997 to 2012.
Big D trails only No. 1 New York and No. 2 Houston in women business power. Texas has the most cities on the list, with San Antonio also making the cut at No. 15.
Forbes listed a few impressive statistics backing up Houston's female founders' clout. From 1997 to 2012, the number of women-owned firms in Houston grew by 42.4 percent. Also, there are 167,300 businesses owned by women in the Bayou City.
